passionate desire

desire…noble, defenseless desire seeks its want

you find it within yourself…your happiness you flaunt

tension deliciously mounts with numerous increases as you jaunt

your heart runs, ignoring the geo-political thread detente



…like the  black stallion in the dark night, speeding onward without delay

…like the blue wave cresting over itself, heedless of any obstacle in its way

…like the brilliance of a summer sunset, streaking its  copper orange passion hues through sky’s roadway


Waves crashing

your heart knows no bounds

… turns in every possible direction

flounders… stumbling over its own emotions…no selection

…cascading into

turbulent joy, no honorable mention

your heart runs and runs…

…oblivious of what is not there

…oblivious of the blank  stares

 ..oblivious of the one way flare




until…you see you are running alone 

until…you feel unrequited desire…no one home

until…you capture your sigh, realizing your heart was on loan

    I love the tempo. It reminds me of a cross between Allen Ginsberg and “It’s all right, ma (I’m only bleeding)”. Beautiful summation.


    • You got it! I haven’t read Allen Ginsberg–not sure who he is–a hippie of days gone by? seems that his name rings a bell—but you CERTAINLY understood the message! Thank you for visiting my blog! and for your comment!


  6. Hello my friend

    I really enjoyed that. As I have said to many before, I am no expert on poetry but I know what I like.

    Despite the main body of the poem following with strength and beautiful imagery I was somehow waiting on the ‘until’ coming.
    Don’t know why so I will just put it down to brilliant writing.



    • Hi Steven, thank you for visiting and leaving a comment! I always LOVE comments! Well–this one was close to home—always easier to write from what one experiences. Thank you for your encouraging words! You honor me so much!
